I have the same strap in brown and I do like it I just never wear it… I really should more often. This looks great on your seiko too!

commented on Modern Vintage Divers...these aren't my scratches... ·

I recently bought a used watch I’ve been stalking for some time too, though perhaps not as enthusiasticly as you have been. I picked up an Oris Diver 65 heritage. It is in good shape but not without a few scratches, probably similar to your Seiko, and I just see it as part of the cost. I agree with you that this is about expectation management, and perhaps a bit of buyer’s remorse. I figure you’ll get over it soon enough and embrace the flaws. These are used tool watches. Honestly I sort of like that mine has had some time in the world and a few scratches.

Bummer dude! I guess it’s a road trip.

commented on Tissot Service: To Mail, or Not To Mail? ·

Is there not a shop that sells Tissot as an AD? Like a Macy’s or Nordstrom or whatever retailer sells Tissot? They’d be able to help too I’d imagine.

commented on I hope I can finally make it this year 🙏 ·

It was earlier last year, and 22. Not by much but I think it was late April. Regardless I’ll be there.
